A lot of it comes down to the rest of your diet. Most people are in some way or form micronutrient deficient, so their bodies are ill equipped to handle certain stresses.Thanks I wasn't aware you could have to much vitamin A, C, D or E until today
I checked my supplements and can see I get 2350 mcg vitamin E daily in supplements before adding what I get from my food.
750mcg from cod liver oil
800mcg from one multivitamin with cod liver oil
800mcg from my other multivitamin
I'll cut out "800mcg from one multivitamin with cod liver oil" from now on.
Mad to think that doing something you thought was positive for your health could actually have detrimental health effects.
Quite alarming to hear about the potential for liver damage

Although hypervitaminosis is pretty rare, you have to really go OTT to risk that stuff.
The real bummer is that multivitamins aren't as effective as people would like to think.

To live longer you need to;
Eat a balanced diet, with plenty of fresh stuff inc Olive Oil
Dont drink too much alcohol
Done get fat/overweight (check your BMI)
Exercise daily (good for your heart and cardio system, get blood pumping)
Dont ride powerful motorbikes
Get regular health checks if over 50 (Colonoscopy, PSA check, cholesterol, Bloods etc)
Providing you dont get a nasty disease you should live into your 80's, and really who wants to live into their 90's ? possible care home, senility etc.
As Southampton suggests, butter’s great (in moderation) mate so don’t worry, great for cooking too and contains CLA ( Conjugated Linoleic acid) which has quite a few health benefits (we’re talking dietary, naturally occurring here NOT CLA supplements), higher in grass fed animals if you can afford it.I eat butter because i enjoy it. If it causes me to snuff it 5 years earlier then I'm not going to swap it for a butter wannabe spread.
He did and it was a long list. Surprisingly he never mentioned red meats but said that organ meats were a completely out of the question. So it seems like a few things that are good for the average person are not good for one with goutYour Gp will be correct from the oily/acidic POV but i hope he also gave you a list of other foods/drinks that should be higher priority for avoiding.
